Train one, teach more! Education is key to long-term change in practice, and local networks are key to global change.
Almost half of the operating rooms in South Asia lack access to a pulse oximeter and training, so we’re hosting a free event in London to train Lifebox faculty for upcoming projects in India.
Can you join us?
Earlier this year we were privileged to receive a three-year grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to help spearhead our work into India, where the safe surgery crisis is acute.
We’ll be delivering Lifebox training and equipment in a number of states, but we’re no fans of ‘parachute development’. Our goal is to support a local faculty who can deliver our educational workshop as experts in their own communities.
So as part of a new collaboration with the British Association of Indian Anaesthetists (BAOIA) who’ll be helping us with our first workshop in Assam State this month, we’re looking for UK-based anaesthetists with links in India and an interest in training and supporting Lifebox work in the region.
If this sounds like you, or a friend, or a friend-of-a-friend, we’ve got just the event: a free one-day Lifebox train-the-trainers course in London, early December.
The programme includes a welcome video from our Chair Atul Gawande, an introduction to the AAGBI/WFSA SAFE course and how this links with Lifebox’s work, and an in-depth run-through of how to deliver a Lifebox workshop.
Faculty are highly experienced Lifebox volunteer trainers and we are applying to the RCOA for delegate CPD points.
